Minister Waqainabete opens new water project in Dogusu Settlement

Hundreds of people of Dogusu Settlement in the Highlands of Ba and nearby villages can now access piped water.

The Water project was initiated by the Year 6 Medical students of the Umanand Prasad School of Medicine of the University of Fiji after it was established that the settlement fetched water from contaminated sources for their daily use.

Team Leader, Sumeet Pratap highlighted that the water available for the villages was not suitable for consumption as it contained many impurities and this could have had adverse impacts on the health of the people.

Health Minister Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete who officially opened their water project acknowledged the efforts of the medical students and highlighted that the government plans to assist all Fijians with the basic needs.
